Named Doctor for all Patients
Following Government (NHS) requirements -
All patients have now been allocated
a Named Doctor.
This doctor will be responsible and accountable for coordinating the overall care you receive at the practice.
We have always registered our patients with individual doctors, but patients can see any GP within the practice. This will continue –
the doctor you see does not
have to be your Named Doctor.
Your Named Doctor may not be available at all times, so sometimes your care will be overseen by another GP on duty; especially at short notice or if your needs are urgent.
We will inform you of your Named Doctor at the first appropriate interaction with the practice. If you wish to know who your Named Doctor is, please ask at reception – please don’t phone the practice for this information.
If a patient expresses a preference for the GP they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate the request.
